When I bought a perfume sample recently the seller threw in a vial of Glow by J.Lo. The vials were packed in bubble wrap and the Glow scent was so strong it hit me like a ton of bricks even before I opened the package. It has an overly sweet/medicinal smell, which another reviewer described as like a "cleaning product". I completely agree.

One of the few perfumes I keep going back to
When I was in high school, I got invited to go to a two week politics conference camp in the USA, which I was hugely excited about. As a gift, my grandmother bought me a bottle of this to take with me so I could feel more grown up, and I adored it. I wore it all the time, and even wore it a little when I came back. Unfortunately, somehow this disappeared and I forgot about it when we moved house, and I didn't give it a second thought.
When I started getting more into fragrance early this year, I went shopping one day in search of a clean, soapy fresh scent. Wandering around, I saw this and couldn't resist smelling it. Though I felt a bit silly at first smelling something I wore as a teenager, I feel like it smells differently on me now, so I think those who say it's for a specific age group are wrong - even my mum loves to wear this in hot 35+ degree Australian heat! The price is an absolute bargain too, usually on sale for about $29 for the 100ml bottle. Light and fun and feminine, great for hot summer days, and quite soapy clean. You can't go wrong with this!
Easy to weaer and one of the few fragrances which get positive responses from everyone, including a self proclaimed "perfumista" demanding to know hat I was wearing then refusing to believe my reply. A secret favourite

I appreciate that Jennifer Lopez wanted this perfume to smell fresh and clean, but in my opinion perfume should be about creating something that is memorable and unlike anything else. If I wanted to smell like Glow, I would go and have a shower and use my $1 soap to recreate this scent. I don't understand why celebrities like to play it safe with their fragrances, go out there and make something crazy and unique!
I find Glow to be very light and soft on the skin. The lasting power is fairly average and the scent stays very close to the skin. If you're a fan of Jennifer Lopez I'd probably skip this perfume and try some of her other fragrances.
Im going to have to give this another try but from first impressions it wasnt great. I didnt necessarily stink but it is not pleasant. It is a clean scent as in cleaning products. The fragrance is better than clorox but bug spray, 409, and windex have it beat. I wouldnt wear this because it almost stinks on me. I can understand how people say it smells like bug spray, but bug spray smells much better. The scent doesnt evolve on me at all. It goes straight to cleaning product scent and stay there. I believe it lasted around 6 to 8 hours on me. Im not about the sillage though. I will update if anything changes.
